Award-winning independent filmmaker William Cusick, originally from Salisbury Township, is producing his
debut narrative feature film "Pop Meets the Void," a comedy that follows
an aspiring musician as he struggles to finish his first album after 15
years of toil.
The filmmakers are currently trying to raising $35,000 on the
crowdfunding website Kickstarter to produce the film this winter in New
York City and in Cusick’s hometown.
Meets the Void," is inspired by the collapse of the music industry and the
rebirth of the musician industry in the age of the Internet. The
soundtrack to the film is comprised of original songs by writer/director
Told through a series of parallel narratives that
explore varying levels of success, the film touches on the complex
nature of creating in obscurity for an unknown audience and the
paradoxes of failure. The film's narratives overlap,
crisscross, intertwine and never end in this surrealist comedy.
